State Secretaries Unite to Reject Former President Obama’s Election Systems Mandates

President Barack Obama spent his last few hours pardoning terrorists, hurting Israel, and making other dangerous moves to damage America.

Now, we’re learning that Obama labeled state election systems as “critical infrastructure,” but Democrat and Republican leaders in every state just joined together to reject his mandate!

This is extraordinary, and unprecedented:

All 50 state secretaries of state are urging the Trump administration to rescind a last-minute Department of Homeland Security directive calling state election systems “critical infrastructure.”

Many state officials fear this is the first step toward a federal takeover of state-run elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

While deep political discord may be found on other issues, state secretaries — who oversee all election machinery — appear completely united against the former administration’s attempt to insert the federal government into state-run elections.

This is a big deal. Election officials across America were furious about the mandate coming through Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson. The Obama White House tried to claim it was about the Russian “election hacking,” but we know it was all about playing politics.

Many of these Secretaries of State are Democrats too. This is a bipartisan, unanimous rejection of a huge last-minute Obama mandate.

What do you think about all 50 states rejecting Obama’s election systems mandate? Please leave us a comment (below) and tell us.
